CarSys 2017 seeks to present innovative and significant research on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of intelligent vehicular computing, communication and control systems, applications, and services. The key themes of this workshop are two-fold:

  1. Connected Vehicles: Based on short- and medium-range communications as well as on cellular networks, vehicular inter-networking will enable vehicular applications that improve road safety, energy efficiency, optimizes traffic flow, as well as for infotainment purposes.
  2. Intelligent Vehicles: As vehicles are equipped with more sensing and computing capabilities, vehicles become more intelligent and are able to accomplish a number of challenging tasks including autonomous driving.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated/semi-automated vehicles
  • Vehicular active safety system
  • Information and sensor fusion
  • Vehicle perception
  • Cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems
  • Telematics and vehicle-cloud integration
  • Vehicular IoT infrastructure
  • V2I / V2V Communication
  • Novel technologies for V2X (e.g., LTE-D, VLC, mmWave, TVWS)
  • Wireless in-car networks
  • Vehicle communication protocol design and network management
  • Vehicle to vulnerable road users (VRU, e.g., bicyclists, pedestrians) communications
  • Vehicle system architecture and design
  • Intelligent vehicle software and computing infrastructure
  • Safety and non-safety applications or service
  • Applications to improve vehicle driver’s experience, performance, and behavior
  • Security, privacy issues and protection mechanisms
  • Field operational testing

Call for posters and demonstrators

ACM CarSys 2017 invites poster papers presenting controversial research directions or promising ideas not yet fully validated, as well as demo papers showcasing prototypes.

Poster and Demo Submission instructions

Poster and demo papers must fit in two pages, and must adhere to the format requirements for full papers in all other aspects. Optionally, a poster paper submission can include a link to the electronic copy of the poster. Authors of the demo papers are strongly encouraged to include a link to a short video presenting their prototype. Electronic copies of posters and demo videos shall be hosted by a third-party cloud storage or streaming service (e.g., Dropbox, Wetransfer, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), so as to ensure the anonymity of reviewers. Additional details on submission instructions are available here.
